– Bikie enforcer Toby Mitchell’s associates were barred from entering court yesterday for wearing Bandidos club colours.
The Bandidos sergeant-at-arms was at Melbourne Magistrates Court to face weapons charges stemming from an 8am police raid on his Docklands home last year.
Police say they found a flick knife and a stun gun.
Taskforce Echo detectives say they also found $45,250 cash they believe were proceeds of crime.
Yesterday, the “Herald Sun” reported allegations that a real estate agent used Mitchell as a heavy to recover a $130,000 debt.
Mitchell, who has survived two attempts on his life in the past three years, was flanked by three men when he arrived at court yesterday morning.
But two of them, wearing Bandidos-patched jumpers, were barred and had to wait outside.
The other man was allowed into court and sat with Mitchell.
A security guard said later it was standard practice to bar bikies wearing patches from courts, for fear that trouble might be stirred up.
Mitchell’s court appearance was brief and he did not enter a plea to the four charges.
An earlier hearing was told the money had been returned to Mitchell after he showed it had been legitimately earned, though proceeds of crime charges are yet to be formally dropped.
Mitchell will next appear before the Melbourne Magistrates Court on November 14, when he is expected to argue the weapons did not belong to him.
Mitchell’s bail was continued on condition that he report to police weekly.
The “Herald Sun” yesterday reported a leading real estate agent brought Mitchell to a formal meeting of creditors after the collapse of property development firm Rivacourt Pty Ltd.
Police are investigating the incident, during which Mitchell was said to have been seen flicking through photographs of the Rivacourt’s director’s home.
The chief executive at the real estate agency’s head office said police had not contacted the company nor spoken to the agent involved.
The chief executive, who was overseas, said he would look into the creditors’ meeting further when he returned.
Consumer Affairs Victoria, the state body that regulates real estate agents, said it could not comment on individual cases, but that real estate agents must not engage in unprofessional conduct.
Spokesman Mario Xuereb said licences of estate agents who breached conduct regulations could be cancelled by the Victorian Civil and Administrative Tribunal – James Dowling


About Jumpin' Jack Cash

Deep connections are the most important aspect of my existence. I don’t care if people don’t know what they want. I love books. I’m cynical of love stories, although I’m romantic. I adore gardens. I like women who challenge me. I love the rain as an excuse to stay inside and dream. I'm furiously impatient. If I ask you a question best to tell me the truth as I'm likely to already know the answer. I'm a carnivore. I continuously underestimate the magic of fresh flowers in my home. I love warm rain in the summer. My mood elevates to epic proportions when the sun shines. Tell me not to do something and I'll do it twice and take photos. Running is my antidepressant. I loathe lies. I rarely forgive a lie. Loyalty and honesty are my most noble virtues, and I value them more than anything in other people. I love to love, and am able to fall in love very quickly, although it's only ever happened once. I understood myself and fixed myself only after destroying myself. My greatest excitement comes from deliberately getting lost in foreign cities. I can be extremely loud and frighteningly silent. I hate insinuations. I love storms. Justice for all. I'm a proud man, but welcome the influence of the feminine soul. I have two sisters. I’m a dreamer. I’m a deep thinker. Don’t deal with guilt trips or drama that well. I'm extremely stubborn and persistent. I'm brilliant at keeping secrets. I love driving. I become absolutely and completely lost while watching a burning fire. When the toast pops from the toaster I’m never ready and shit myself. I play the guitar, but require much improvement. Solitude and warmth of the sun are perfect together. I’ve been married once and now divorced. I’m a music junkie. Chocolate mousse is the shit. I curse too much. I find it difficult to make friends. I spent four years as a firefighter. I’ve run my own company since 1991. Bright lights, big cities. I’ve been an executive producer of a feature film. Some people don’t care, and that’s the biggest let-down of the human race. There are cures and solutions for many evils, but no remedy for the worst of them all - the apathy of human beings. The sound of the Italian language being spoken is as good as my favourite music. I hate corrupt cops. I relentlessly and passionately pursue anybody and anything that sets my soul on fire. I'm a dog lover, and all my dogs are considered family members. I have an obsession with photography. I have some close friends who are household names, but shall always remain anonymous. I’m crazy but not lazy. Losing a soulmate has hurt me badly. My two young sons are the nucleus of my universe. I love airports. I love freedom. If you are dishonest or disloyal, I can erase you from my life and memory immediately and permanently. I yearn to explore, dream about and discover as many friendships, deep connections and places, one possibly can in a lifetime.
